THE PALOMAR PARADOX PERFECT PAPERBACK

Each of the characters in ‘The Palomar Paradox’ deals with the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) in their own way. As in real life, some believe; others don't want you to believe.

 ‘The Palomar Paradox’ sees Luper Beauchamps, a brilliant scientist, back in an astronomical observatory searching for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence. He finds himself working with Leila Keiler, a young student recovering from leukaemia, and Karina Lowenhaupt, an experienced astronomer.

 Other characters include, Trent Forsyth, a senior Pentagon official, and his intern, Rihanna Sørensen. They are charged chiefly with quashing all reports of, and evidence for, extraterrestrial activity.

 As the SETI research continues . . .
